This is your wifi card BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n you need to install rpmfusion.org and install nonfree akmod-wl and kernel-devel so it will make your card works.

akmods --force
modprobe wl
iwconfig
systemctl restart NetworkManager

This issue would b very easily resolved by updating drivers. Yes, update your network/wifi drivers which are compatible with fedora OS and i am sure after doing this update, e5430 will be easily work with wifi. In case, if this would not happen then check Dell Latitude E5430 Manual for help.
